benchmarks

Recommended Posts

can benchmarks be added to the database ? Is a USGS concrete post considered a benchmark , even though it is not listed ? In other words , a " quarter section " survey marker placed by USGS with disc still attached .

While they 'could' be added, the fact that the Geocaching benchmark database hasn't been updated in 10+ years leads us to believe it will never happen.

The benchmark database on this site is not likely to get any updates. The Waymarking.com site (also run by Groundspeak) is where people would add benchmarks and other stuff not found in the year 2000 snapshot of the benchmark database. Note that if it is an actual benchmark (as opposed to something like a property boundary marker) then it may be listed in the regular NGS database. If you were to post a picture of the marker, and/or describe exactly what is stamped on it, then I imagine someone will be able to identify exactly what it is.
